There has only been 10% ethanol around here for a long time, and I've been running everything on it with no ill effects.

15% ethanol was just approved by the EPA very recently, and it hasn't actually made it into any markets that I am aware of. I think that it is only approved for recent year cars and light trucks, not for off road equipment, motorcycles, boats or small engines, and they are working out the details on how it is to be labelled and dispensed. Their original idea was to allow blender pumps like they use now to blend regular and premium to get mid-grade, but instead it would be some method of blending the alcohol into the gas, but then actual tests were done and enough of the 15% alcohol fuel stays in the hose after pumping that they were going to require vehicles that it was not approved for to purchase a least 4 gallons of non-15% to guarantee that the alcohol level was low enough on that purchase to be safe for other other vehicle, but then someone pointed out to them that most motorcycles have fuel tanks smaller than 4 gallons, so now they're back at the drawing board.

E85, which is 85% ethanol has been on the market for a few years, and it is approved only for cars and light trucks that have been designed to use it. They usually have a badge on the rear of the vehicle that says "Flex-Fuel" or something like that.
